Pamela attends Global Gift Gala in Madrid

She’s been at the centre of a nasty family spat in recent weeks.

And Pamela Anderson was putting on a brave face when she attended the Global Gift Foundation charity gala, held at the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum in downtown Madrid, Spain on Thursday night.

The A-list star, 50, showed off her curves in a clingy silk gown when she graced the red carpet at the event, which aims to help needed children around the world.

Pamela looked incredible in the strapless taupe dress, which she set off with a pair of black stilettos.
The Hollywood star wore her golden locks cascading gown in tumbling curls and kept her make-up light and natural.

This marked Pamela’s second public appearance since news of the family fight broke earlier this month, after her 21-year-old son Brandon hit his father (and her ex-husband) Tommy Lee.

The incident with the Motley Crue drummer made the news after the 55-year-old rocker took to social media with a selfie of the busted, bloody lip he suffered after his son struck him amid an argument spurred by a social media post in which he spoke out against Pamela.

‘My heart is broken,’ wrote Lee, who’s also father to a 20-year-old with the one-time Playboy Playmate named Dylan Jagger Lee. ‘You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you. Good job Brandon! Great son!’

Brandon went on to claim that he gave a drunken Lee the fat lip in self-defense, telling People, ‘I’m devastated at the events of the last several days that have been a result of my father’s alcoholism.’

Pamela posted a blog on her website in which she said that her son hit Lee ‘in the nose for all of us who he has hurt.’

‘Now Tommy feels humiliated – and is attempting to destroy his own son,’ she said of Lee, who was convicted of felony spousal batter on her in 1998. ‘This is the Devil – This is the disease of alcoholism.’

She wrote that the Dr. Feelgood drummer positions himself ‘consistently [as] the center of sadness, drama and confusion,’ has been ‘jealous of his [sons’] talent and beauty from the day they were born,’ and is the walking ‘definition of narcissist/sociopath.’
Lee said that he would follow through with authorities to prosecute his son over the assault, according to TMZ.

A source close to Lee told TMZ of his thinking: ‘You encourage what you tolerate, and he’s not going to tolerate what Brandon did and that’s why he wants the criminal case to keep moving along … at least for now.’

The mother-of-two was asked about the incident between her son and ex at the event but did not respond, according to TMZ.

The Canadian beauty had appeared in Sin City for a convention in which she spoke out against the business model of ride-share services such as Uber and Lyft, the outlet reported.

Anderson said that the business model is flawed for both sides in terms of the riders and drivers, who she said are exploited.

Pamela Anderson Rails on Ride-Hail Apps

Pamela Anderson took her viral campaign against ride-hail apps to the podium and delivered her message in the flesh, saying riders and drivers get the short end of the stick.

Pam spoke at a conference in Vegas Monday to discuss the controversial subject, and she reinforced her points about apps like Uber and Lyft absolving themselves of responsibility for both their customers and employees … or “independent contractors” as they’d call them.

She tells folks in the room that ride-hail companies are fully aware of just how dangerous their services really are, and are basically saying good luck to someone when they accept a ride. Interestingly, she also goes to bat for drivers … whom she says get exploited.

Pam’s touched on these topics before — most recently in a PSA called ‘Terms and Conditions’ in which she calls attention to the risk riders assume by using Lyft and Uber.

She also gets asked about Tommy Lee wanting to prosecute their son, Brandon, for allegedly knocking him out … but refuses to answer.

Pamela’s New Ride-Hail PSA

Pamela Anderson is back to taking aim at ride-hail apps and the drivers she believes aren’t properly vetted … now tying them to the #MeToo movement.

Pam stars in a new ad/PSA in which she’s surrounded by headlines about sexual misconduct in Hollywood and the #MeToo movement, when a rideshare app driver pulls up.

The tension rises as the driver ominously stares at Pam through the rear view mirror and locks the doors — all while #MeToo flashes on her phone.

As we reported … Pam released a similar PSA last year, but this one definitely ups the ante.

Pam also released a statement to TMZ about her new ad, saying in part … “Ride-hail apps are a haven for predators. It’s scary how many #metoo tweets are linked to ride-hailing.”

Lyft tell us Pam’s campaign misleads consumers about the benefits and safety features of Lyft. They add … drivers must pass multiple background checks before being able to drive, and each ride is covered with a $1 million liability insurance policy.

No word back from Uber yet.
